Seaway Marine Transport Trains at MSI Newport

Monday, March 01, 2004
A group of four students from Seaway Marine Transport (SMT) completed an Emergency Shiphandling course on 18 February at MSI Newport. This course examines the theory and practice of ship handling. It includes an abundance of simulator time for attempting and mastering various maneuvers. The course is especially designed and recommended for Chief Mates who will soon sail as Master. Subject matter includes the proper relationship between engines and helm for ship maneuvering; and, the effects on ship behavior caused by wind, current, shallow water, banks, narrow channels and conditions of loading. Everything is reinforced by practical application exercises performed on the bridge and bridge wing simulators. The course is designed around major ship maneuvering evolutions: traffic situations, arrival/departure, anchoring, and maneuvering in channels. The program can be tailored to specific shipping company operations, vessels and ports.
